Meet the Teacher

I am very excited to be Candler's  Title One Literacy Specialist. As the Title One Lead Teacher I will be working directly with classroom teachers and I will also be teaching reading to students in grades Kindergarten through fifth. I will assist in professional development and hold parent meetings in order to help provide guidance in  reading methods. It is my hope to instill a love of adventure, first the adventure in reading mastery and then in the adventures that reading stories provide.

Ms.Strickland's professional experience: This is my 31st year of teaching and I still enjoy learning new and exciting things. I have a Master's in Education which I received in California. I also have a supplemental credential in English and Reading. The most rewarding experience of teaching is witnessing the "Ah-ha" moment that children have and witnessing children get lost in the adventure of a book.

Ms. Strickland's favorites: I love teaching, animals, especially my cat named Katie(she thinks she's a dog), gardening, drawing,  hiking, swimming, reading, movies, macaroni and cheese, traveling, learning new technology, and snow. I love snow, but I love all of our seasons and all that they have to offer.One book series that makes me laugh is the Hank Zipser books by Henry Winkler, and adventure books by Gary Paulsen. I hope you'll give them a try and tell me what are your favorites??
